RECIPE FOR MY MOM’S JUICY TURKEY BURGERS!!!!!!!!

Kitchen Tools

  • Large bowl
  • Plastic wrap
  • Large ziplock bag
  • Cutting board
  • Your favorite knife for chopping produce

Ingredients

  • 2 packages of ground turkey (approx. 2 to 2.5 pounds)
  • 8 ounces of chopped up button mushrooms
  • Approximately 4 ounces of chopped up baby spinach
  • 3 tablespoons of EVOO
  • 1/4 of Quaker quick oats
  • Pepper
  • Sea Salt (not too much)

Instructions

  • Take your plastic wrap and pre-cut about 8-9 sheets the size of a hard cover book. Don’t remember what that looks like? Think – iPad Mini…
  • Take your mushrooms and chop them you. You want a medium chop. To give you a visual, the pieces should be about the size of two corn kernels.
  • Now chop your spinach in a fine chop. You don’t want an entire leaf to be rolled into a burger!
  • In a pan warm up your EVOO on Medium and once the EVOO is hot add in your mushrooms and spinach.
  • Mix, Mix, Mix, Mix, Mix!
  • Add in the oats when you see your mushrooms have started to soften
  • Mix, Mix, Mix, Mix, Mix!
  • After the oats are incorporated and softened a bit add the mushrooms/spinach/oats mix to a large bowl containing your ground turkey.
  • Now, the icky part! Use you hands to start combining the ingredients. As you are working the mix add the pepper and salt.
  • (REMEMBER! In order to keep a sanitary work environment, pre-measure your salt and pepper. This way your turkey hands aren’t roaming around the kitchen!)
  • NOW! It is PATTY time!
  • Take out portions of the turkey mix approximately the size of a very large lemon. Roll it around in your hands and then flatten with the palm and heel of your hands.
  • Wrap the patties that you want to store in the plastic wrap and place inside of a large ziplock bag.
  • When done WASH THOSE HANDS!

Cooking Instructions

  • My mother’s technique works best! Place inside of a George Foreman grill for exactly 8 minutes. Plan on making some ahead to microwave at work? Then cook those only for 7 minutes.
  • If you do not have a George Foreman grill, take a frying pan and give it the quickest spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cook on each side of the patty at medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes.

I like to serve the turkey burgers with some lettuce on a sandwich thin. As a side, skip the chips! Humus and carrots are filling and a MUCH healthier and delicious option! Also, this is a perfect example of one of the meals that I ate during the 21 Day Fix!
